The much-anticipated Pocket Oxford-PWN Polish Dictionary
brings together the authority and expertise of two of the world's major reference publishers, in a compact and affordable format.
With more than 80,000 words and phrases, and over 120,000 translations, here is all the vocabulary readers need for day-to-day use, presented in a very easy-to-use format, with thousands of clear examples to help to choose the right word in the right context. For example, if readers wish to translate the word "firm," this dictionary will help them differentiate between "a firm handshake," "a firm mattress," and "a firm date." With Polish material taken from the PWN Corpus of Polish, a huge databank of real Polish, and English language material derived from the Oxford English Corpus, a multi-million word databank of real English, this dictionary is clearly the most authoritative on the market. Moreover, the dictionary has been checked throughout by Polish and English native speakers, to ensure that the information given is more accurate and up to date than in any comparable dictionary.
A conveniently sized paperback that is both portable and accessible, the new Pocket Oxford-PWN Polish Dictionary is a great resource for everyone from the lover of Polish culture to the beginning or intermediate language student.
With over 80,000 words and phrases and over 120,000 translations, this comprehensive dictionary is very easy to use, with clear signposts to help you choose the right word. There are over 300,000 Poles now living and working in the UK, so this is an essential and eagerly anticipated publication.
